This is a collection of thoughts and statements about things that annoy me. I am a big, angry man. Hear me roar, or piss off and give me peace.

Hippies bite back

According to the Torygraph, climate scientists who do not hold the "mainstream" point of view on anthropogenic global warming are being threatened, and ostracised by their peers.
"They say the debate on global warming has been "hijacked" by a powerful alliance of politicians, scientists and environmentalists who have stifled all questioning about the true environmental impact of carbon dioxide emissions."
... so in other words, we're fucked. And here's the clincher...
"I can tolerate being called a sceptic because all scientists should be sceptics, but then they started calling us deniers, with all the connotations of the Holocaust. That is an obscenity. It has got really nasty and personal."
Scientific reason has gone the way of religious fervour. Rational thought and argument cannot win against blind faith and the lies published.
